What do you think about selling them all and reinvesting in AAPL, MSFT, BRK and AMZN. Any alternatives you can suggest. I don't mind forgoing the income.

Q: Can you provide a 'buy' list for a person wanting to deploy $200,000 (inside RRSP) with the goal of creating 5% or more sustained cash flow - as well as growing the original capital to keep up with inflatiion? We do not have company pensions - this would serve to supplement our government pensions.
Thinking, 20 stocks across all sectors @ $10,000 each (or 5%)
Also could you include 10 growth stocks (inside TFSA) for a total of $250,000 - gotta have some fun ;)
Many Thanks

I am looking for your recommendations on good dividend paying stocks. Stocks which have come under pressure due to market conditions. Stocks that are low risk and do not have high debt. I am mostly interest in income stocks but would also like a stock that would give me some capital gains. I have listed these and would appreciate rating these. Please also provide me with any other tickers you feel would fit my needs here which I may not have thought about.

Thank you.

Q: Hi 5i,
I know you havenít been big fans of WBA due to their debt load. They had a decent earnings beat today, boosted by Covid vaccinations. They took a majority interest in Village MD to open more health clinics attached to their drugstores. They are also considering exiting the sale of tobacco products.
What are your thoughts on WBA these days with this renewed health focus?
Thanks again.

Q: Appreciate your best advice regarding selling half of my large position of Visa and purchasing Walgreen's in my cash account. Anticipating Walgreen's will be very involved in providing vaccinations. Or better to stay with a large concentration of Visa with the economic recovery (hopefully) in USA. What is Walgreen's dividend? Thanks for your valuable input/advice as always.
